Nolan Hester has worked as a darkroom technician, ad studio assistant, and photojournalist. His photos have appeared online and in print for a variety of outlets, including ZesterDaily.com, Alaska magazine, and The Los Angeles Times travel section. His landscape, travel, and Web photography have inspired many of the timesaving tips and techniques described in his more than 20 books for Peachpit Press. Like every photographer, Nolan truly believes he’ll eventually find the perfect camera bag.
The head shot, btw, is meant to be a bit of a meta-photo: I'm holding a WhiBal card, firing the camera with a remote, and dangling the glasses that portrait subjects usually hate to be seen in. Oh, and I applied Lightroom's split-tone process.
